• Sites That I Have Created

    From Mike Dippel@316:316/1 to All on Tue Dec 7 15:15:00 2021
    As the topic area suggest, I have some favorites.. sites that I have designed.

    Years ago, I did web design and web hosting for a lot of companies around the world. So that I could help then get noticed, I started a local business Directory website. By placing their site on this Directory, they had great exposure. I even placed Google Ads on the Directory and was making over $1000 a month on the ads alone, in addition to the money my customers were paying me each month.

    I figured that if I could make that with one site, I could increase it by creating other Directories. Even though the Google money started to dry out, I ended up with 26 online Directory sites that each have a niche of some kind.

    The sites were not Mobile Friendly, so I had to come up with a solution. I used a basic mobile-friendly template that I applied to each of the Directories, and used a script that would detect the type of device, and send it to the folder containing the mobile version.

    So what is my favorite website? My main site is:
    https://www.hobbyline.com A list of these Directories can be found on the About Us page. There is a Business Advertisers page that lists my most current projects.

    There is also a link to my Winserver website http://hobbylinebbs.com that uses a mobile-friendly template. Feel free to create a free account there.

    I guess bootstrap is the way to go these days when creating mobile
    sites, but I expect wordpress has some fancy plugins to also deal with
    that. One thing about a WP site tho, is you can tell it's a WP site!

    So what is my favorite website? My main site is:

    www.endofthelinebbs.com of course.

    I also do a song of the day on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/nigelssongoftheday

    The place I used to get massages at were not getting much business so I
    created a nice little webpage for them and helped promote the business.

    https://www.myplanomassage.com

    She ended up selling so I should contact the new owners. I could make
    it a directory of local massage places and let them buy a position on
    the list. More they pay, higher up the list :)


    So what happened to the Google ads drying up? They not paying as much
    or just not as much traffic, or the ad blockers?
